TCLP 2010-12-15 Interview: Cory Doctorow, "With a Little Help"


Topics podcast, feature


This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

There is no new hacker word of the week this week due to the length of the feature.

The feature this week is my interview with Cory Doctorow about his newly launched anthology, "With a Little Help". Look for an article soon at Publishers Weekly from Cory about the experimental nature of the project so far. Russell Galen is Cory's agent who included a piece in the anthology. Ideo's innovation platform is OpenIdeo. Even after fifteen editions, editors are still correcting typos in Steven Brust's "The Phoenix Guards". Not all anthologies have the long commercial life of J.D. Salinger's "Frenny and Zooey". John Berry is the renowned typographer with whom Cory has worked. The book club anthology Cory mentions is "Godlike Machines", another one edited by Jonathan Strahan. The chap book Cory mentions will be from PM Press. Here is James Boyles' call for evidence based policy. When we are talking about Google Editions, I mention Ryan Singel's coverage at Wired and my own inference that Google may be smarting from the Books settlement. Cory linked on BoingBoing to a video of a British student involved with the protests eloquently calling for social justice. Cory may finally write an idea that has been bouncing around his head, sort of his response to Cormac McCarthy's "The Road".
